    Talking Whats your opinion? Possibly my new gelding :)

    Two year old "dark buckskin" paint overo gelding. Whats your opinion on his color and overall apperance? Is he a buckskin or dark bay? Im not the best with colors or genetics. The little old man that owns him seems to not know as much either.. I sure love this guy though! :)

    What do you think?

    He is pretty! Belly looks a bit wormy, but that can be taken care of. He is two, so it's up to you whether to start him or not. I usually do LIGHT riding and wait till three, even four to really start riding. I'm not a color guru either, so I can't help you there. He's gorgeous though, and conformation is alright for a two year old. Nothing really jumps out at me. Is he registered at all?

    I couldnt find much that jumped out to me too other than his belly and he could use some muscle but that will all come with time, patience, and work. I forgot to mention he will be my project horse and then probably my personal horse for trails, pleasure, and obstacles.
    He's just so **** cute, I woke up this morning thinking about him and really hope this all works out! :)

    OH and the current owner says he never did all that but he can be registered if I wanted to.

    I really like his "substance" but I really can't give you more than that since I'm still new to this.

    But is one of his hinds a club? (left)

    I believe his color is bay dun. The dun factor is what is giving him his dorsal stripe as well as making his color a little brighter. Buckskin would mean that he has the cream gene, which would make him a lot lighter than he is. So he is Bay + Dun. Hope this helps!

    Yeah. Something does seem off about that back hoof. I thought maybe it was how he was standing, but it seems to be that way in every shot.

    Can you take a better picture of the dorsal stripe?
